We all know that traveling today has its challenges, especially in the realm of security. Naturally, we all want to be safe and understand that measures must be taken, but we are often forced to compromise our fashion sense when flying, thinking, Should I forego the belt and fun shoes since I have to strip down in security? And for those of us trying to avoid pesky baggage fees with carry-ons, we are faced with the nightmare of how to transport our bath and beauty products without turning over our $40 tube of hair gel to the bored security guard.
Thankfully, a pair of savvy travelers have created 3floz.com—an e-commerce site with all of your favorite products in pint-size bottles that are free to fly in your carry-on luggage. Beauty industry experts, Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz, saw a gap in the market and filled it with high-end grooming and personal care items (many organic and natural) that can be shipped anywhere or hand-delivered to clients living in Manhattan on the same day they are ordered. The luminous line-up on their site includes Philip B, Go Smile, Ole Henriksen, Malin + Goetz, Air Repair, Archipelago Botanicals, Anthony for Men, travel kits from Ahava, The Art of Shaving, Dr. Hauschka, Jonathan and Yes to Carrots. These mini potions and lotions also provide a great way to test out a new brand in their 3-ounce size with prices ranging from $3 to $110.
